Must Reads 09/13/2013

Well, it’s the end of the week and time to share some blogs that I’ve read over the past week. It is my joy to share them with you, and I pray that God moves in you as He did in me when I first read them.

  • Seth Haines talks about how Preston Yancey [hypothetically] stole his bike.

  • Natalie Trust gives an excellent perspective on The Church is a Whore. If you’ve read the two posts I’ve written on this, you’ll want to read hers too. Seriously. Go read it.
  • Hannah Anderson nails it again with her piece on Tribes. And in the irony that is the human experience, those of us speaking most loudly against racism and prejudice are often the first to coalesce into tribes to do it.
